2:04 am
law by governor john hick looper, yet his arguments are supposedly full of stale statistics. 40% of all gun purchases were made without a background check, but that number is almost 20 years old. >> why wouldn't we want to make it more difficult for a dangerous person to get his or her hand on a gun? why wouldn't we want to close the loophole that allows as many as 40% of all gun purchases to take place without a background check? why wouldn't we do that? >> that 40% bit was pulled from a study where 251 answered the question about where they got their guns. now we're hearing from groups like the washington gun association. members held a press conference yesterday offering a number of alternatives including allowing school personnel to carry firearms and more attention to those who are
2:05 am
suffering from mental issues. >> the united states secret service, when they released their study, found that 71% of attackers felt threatened or bullied. that's not an excuse, but it is a pre-indicator as to steps that a school can take to identify a threat but also to have proper mental health responses in a school environment. >> after colorado, the president will continue his campaign. he'll be heading to connecticut next week. he wants stricter universal background checks and at least a voting congress on the assault weapons ban as well as more magazine restrictions. >> elizabeth, thank you so much. >> now stories you can bank on this morning. the labor department is handing out millions of dollars to help some americans get jobs. this money is only available to people with juvenile records. lauren simonetti joins us in the fox business network.

2:09 am
system. on the back end of it it is cold enough that we've had a little bit of snow coming down across sections of the texas and oklahoma panhandles. a little bit of accumulation has been recorded in spots. keep in mind travel along interstate 10 will be an issue. the other concern, it is still cold out there. the midwest and northeast, current temperatures in the 20's. minneapolis and chicago, high temperatures not too bad. minneapolis at 50. >> stunning views from the top of the world trade center. officials reveal the very first look at the observation deck 102 floors up. and when it opens to the public, it will be a lot more than a room with a view. our wnyw reporter gives us a peek at what is planned for that. >> it is a view that will take your breath away. 1,250 feet above the ground, this is what it looks like from the 100th floor of the new one world

colbert bush. >> gun rights supporters say it is a sad day for the united states, the u.s. joining with the majority of the u.n. to approve a trade treaty. critics say it lets the u.n. govern our lives. the u.n. was against the treaty -- the u.s. was against the treaty until president obama took office. >> brew on this question of the day. don't call them illegal immigrants. the associated press is now dropping that term from its style book and no longer allowing its reporters to use it in their work. the a.p. senior vice president says the term illegal can only be used to describe an action and not a person. many immigration activists have been asking journalists to lose the word saying illegal immigrants actually dehumanizes people. but even homeland security secretary janet napolitano uses it. take a look what she said
2:17 am
last week when asked by reporters what term to use. >> i don't get caught up in the vocabulary wars. they are immigrants who are here illegally. that is an illegal immigrant. they are immigrants who are here without documents, that is an undocumented immigrant. >> we want to know do you think the term "illegal immigrant" is fair to use? send your comments to us. you can tweet them to us at fox friends first or shoot us an e-mail and we will read some of those later in the show. >> disturbing video of rutgers basketball coach mike rice abusing players at practices. espn airs an video where he is seen hurling basketballs, shoving and even kicking players. rice is even seen throwing a ball at a player's head. rutgers admits it is considering letting him go amid widespread outrage about this this morning. the school knew about this video since november. rice is suspended for three games and fined $50,000 a month later. the former assistant coach

2:25 am
cures for brain diseases like alzheimer's, which currently affects five million people at a cost of $200 billion a year. >> imagine if no family had to feel helpless watching a loved one disappear behind the mask of parkinson's or struggle in the grip of epilepsy. imagine if we could reverse traumatic brain injury or ptsd for veterans coming home. >> the program would be funded with $100 billion from president barack obama's first 2014 budget. the white house says it is in line with its state of the union pledge to increase funding for scientific research to spur economic growth. >> it is now 25 after the top of the hour. coming up, at first, the administration says the sequester cuts left america vulnerable on the border, but now they have a different story. >> i'm saying -- >> absolutely not. you're editorializing.

2:32 am
connecticut, are furious over a plan to move 95 terminally ill prisoners into a nursing home right in their backyard. the state says it will save taxpayers millions of dollars because prisoners don't qualify for medicaid if they stay locked up. it also says it's only moving inmates who aren't a threat to the public. >> i would not let my children play in the yard. it just wouldn't -- i wouldn't feel safe letting them play in the one place they should feel safe. >> rocky hill filed a suit to challenge the state's plan. >> new video showing the first up close look inside that deadly sink hole in florida from february. the footage taken by a contractor who examined that hole shortly before the house was demolished. you can see there is almost no floor remaining in jeff bush's bedroom. his body was never recovered after he was swallowed by the ground there. we have learned the two homes that were evacuated after the sink hole open will now be condemned. >> fox news confirming the

2:34 am
school as the president takes his scaled-down gun control message to colorado. >> i noted and the president has noted that when it comes to background checks, the measure you mentioned, this is something supported by over 90% of the american people. >> not anymore, though. public support for a whole host of gun control ideas has been flipping since just january according to one fox news poll. but the president is hoping to leverage what backing remains and build pressure on lawmakers to take action. the national rifle association meantime is pushing its own response plan. they're out with a new study to back their idea to train one person in each school to carry a firearm, something they say could have helped in connecticut. >> we did not have response capability. you had teachers giving up their lives. so we don't want teachers to have to do that. >> while support for gun control at the national level may be flagging, in some individual states it's a different story. connecticut today is going to be pushing a strict new

2:36 am
agents, you have 5,000 fewer border patrol agents, that has a real impact. >> were those comments just an attempt to scare the american people about sequestration? that is exactly what ed henry tried to find out. >> the secretary came in here and said that we were going to be less safe, people would be crossing the border because there are less border patrol agents. they announced yesterday we're not doing that. i'm not saying it's not important. i'm saying -- >> absolutely not scaring the public. you're editorializing enormously in that. >> how so? february 25, she said if you have 5,000 fewer border patrol hours or agents, you have 5,000 fewer border patrol agents. that has a real impact. >> the impact of the sequester will not all be immediate. if you can predict to me when the sequester will end, if it will end, when republicans will make the fateful decision to fund border patrol agents or fund our national security interests or fund head
2:37 am
start at appropriate levels rather than continue to extend tax breaks to the wealthy and well-connected, tell me when that happens and then we can assess what damage was done after the fact. >> the white house has previously come under fire for what critics said was an exaggeration of sequestration effects. >> time to entertain this. jimmy fallon's march to inherit the tonight show is reportedly near completion. sources say he closed a new deal with nbc but the network is debating when to announce this transition. also still in the air, staebgt when fallon will -- exactly when fallon will take over leno's spot. >> jim henson's partner in the muppets died. jane henson was 78 years old. >> a sequel to finding nemo is now in the works.

2:39 am
heat scoring 50 points. that ties a career high. the heat played without lebron james and dwayne wade. new york won 102-90. wichita state isn't just playing for the ncaa championship. it's playing for pizza today. pizza hut, which was founded in wichita, and is promising to give free pizzas to all the wichita state students if the school wins a championship. >> a lot of pizza. >> every college student loves that. >> before you leave the house let's get your first degree weather forecast. hi, maria, in the weather center. >> good morning. chilly temperatures across the northern half of the country. we're seeing them well below average. look at some of the current wind chill temperatures, what it feels like when you head out the door. in the 20's for kansas city, minneapolis, new york city and parts of maine, single digit current wind chill temperatures. as you head into the afternoon hours a little
2:40 am
better for places like new york city. 47 degrees will be your high temperature. 50 in the city of minneapolis. some of this cold air is helping produce lake-effect snow. we should continue to see a few snow showers off the lakes as we head into basically the rest of the morning. that will continue to wind down. that is a little bit of good news drying out across areas across the great lakes. across parts of the south we are not doing drying out. we have an area of low pressure producing areas of very heavy rain across louisiana moving into parts of mississippi, new orleans. it is going to be a soggy morning commute for you this morning on the backside of the system, we have a winter weather advisory. snow coming down in parts of the texas and oklahoma panhandle. >> snow in texas. thanks so much. 20 minutes till the top of the hour. coming up, your taxes paid for them, so should the government make sure people who receive food stamps aren't criminals? that's happening in one state. plus ready, set, and ainsley, ready to shop? the next time you get in
2:41 am
trouble for a shopping spree, listen to this. it turns out retail therapy could actually be good for you. i like that excuse. >> i know; right? girl vo: i'm pretty conservative. very logical thinker. (laughs) i'm telling you right now, the girl back at home would absolutely not have taken a zip line in the jungle. (screams) i'm reallylad that girl stayed at home. vo: expedia helps 30 million travelers a month find what they're looking for.

2:43 am
2:44 am
>> good morning. it is 44 minutes after the hour. let's span the globe and see what stories are making headlines. first to the gaza strip, where israel has been forced to defend itself with its first attack on gaza since the eight-day war last november. israel says it launched an airstrike after it came under attack from several rockets. next to england. a guy using a homemade bomb blowing up an a.t.m. machine to steal the cash inside. the suspect was eventually arrested. police say it was a lucky thing that explosion didn't cause injuries or more damage. >> finally, to sydney, australia, where the famous opera house was lit up in blue for world autism day. other famous landmarks around the globe: japan, the philippines and india
2:45 am
also turning blue to raise awareness for that disorder. >> people in north carolina applying for food stamps about to undergo criminal background checks to qualify for the government aid. this after legislators voted for this bill. fox business network diane macedo has the story. >> north carolina's house and human services committee voted to require criminal background checks for anyone seeking welfare and food stamps from the state but the legislation provides no funding for those checks. that's one of the issues here. federal law prohibits certain fugitives from receiving public benefits and the department of social services currently has the option of performing formal background checks but it can also take people at their word that they're not in trouble with the law. the bill's sponsors say that is not enough and also take issue with the d.s.s. not providing criminal information to the police. the bill aims to not only require background checks but the d.s.s. office would have to tell law
2:46 am
enforcement agencies if the applicant is a fugitive or wanted on an outstanding warrant. the big question seems to be who will pay for these background checks and whether they'll apply to current recipients. according to the state department of health and human services there were nearly 822,000 people benefitting from food stamps in february and more than 21,000 on state welfare in march. you could be looking at millions of dollars here. one of the bill's sponsors says the cost to local government is still unclear but even with that up in the air the measure is on its way to the house floor. >> thank you, diane. it's now 46 after the top of the hour. still ahead, ready, set, shop. the next time you get in trouble for shopping, listen to this. it turns out retail therapy could actually be good for you. >> are you about to take a sip of your morning coffee? if so, you want to stick around for the next segment. it turns out it could be revealing a lot about you. dr. keith ablow here to explain what your gentleman
